A new thesis poster!

My two prototypes for the material I want to make:


For the show and tell booth, I showed my two prototype materials and set up for people to make shapes and color them. I asked people what they are trying to “project” with their clothes today, and heard a lot of “comfort” and “have to work in the shop today” and “lazy”. For color choice, people wore neutral and dull colors to not call attention to themselves. We talked about my ideas and then people’s feedback was:

1. situations that they could use this
-practical applications (rescue, uniforms)
-theatrical applications (designate speaker in situations, etc)
-everyday life applications (deter creepy guys, attract cute ones at parties)

2. materials and ways to do it
-casting-draft angles
-pearlescent paints
